                                                INTRODUCTION

 Drugs are not picky. They do not dominate in any one race, gender, ethnicity or social standing.
 Drugs can affect any family and with endless resources out there, it may seem next to impossible
 to know where to start the prevention process. That is where we come in. Drugs are a horror to which many
 families have thought themselves untouchable. Even if you’ve raised your kids well, illicit substances and the
 pressure to experiment with them can still influence your child’s life. Experimentation with drug use is a
 slippery slope, as it often leads to more frequent use and eventual addiction.

 This brochure aims to help busy parents like you learn what you need to know about drugs, how
 to prevent your kids from using drugs, and if the problem arises, how to fight to save your children. While
 you may not have hours to devote to sorting through studies and documents on
 teen drug abuse, we have condensed a great deal of “must know” information into this easy-to- read format,
 including resources to help you research further.

 For preventing drug use in the home, you will need a competent set of tools. The most powerful tool at your
 disposal is information. To help your teen stay away from drugs, you will need to:

     •    Know what signs to look for that may indicate drug abuse
     •    Learn how to prevent drug abuse in your home.
     •    Acquire knowledge about the latest in drug testing technology.
     •    Understand the popular drug trends occurring among young people today.
     •    Learn how to intervene should you discover your child is abusing drugs.
     •    Find much more information and resources to keep you informed and ready to battle drug abuse.

 Never assume that your child cannot succumb to drug abuse. Regardless of race, gender or social class,
 drugs can affect your teen’s life. In order to set up your plan of action, you must learn and recognize the
 signs of abuse.
